Yesterday I did my monthly grocery shopping at Wal-Mart. One item I buy nearly every visit is tortillas. And this trip was no different.

But, what I found in the tortilla aisle was a bit different and, if you ask me, sneaky of Wal-Mart. I used to always buy the "Mission" tortillas for $1.56 for a package of 10. I noticed that they have come out with their own store brand of tortillas so I was checking the prices. They have raised the price of the "Mission" tortillas to $2.44 and made theirs 2/$3!

I did not want to buy the store brand merely on principle of them doing this, but why would I pay almost $1 more? And, *that* my friends, is why Wal-Mart has the reputation with me that they do.
